Safety Measures In Mines using Automation

Authors(5) :-Siddharth A.K. Dhagat, Diksha A. Srivastav, Neha Y. Fulzele, Arati P.Bondre, Atharva U. Kulkarni

In this paper we are implementing surveillance, safety measures for mine workers which is most essential in underground mining areas/sections. Here we are presenting MEMS based sensors network used to monitor the environment parameters of underground mine area and sends all sensed parameters/data to the PLC( Programmable Logic Controller). Gas sensor is used to detect the gas found underground. The vibration sensor is used to detect the vibrations .Vibration above a particular level would be assumed as a problem in the mine which would actuate the lift and provide timely help to the workers.
